Midfield ace set for surgery on broken left leg
Hatters boss Nathan Jones has this morning given lutontown.co.uk an update on Cameron McGeehan, after the Town midfielder suffered a broken leg when his studs caught in the Fratton Park turf as he went to make a challenge during Monday’s 1-0 defeat to Portsmouth.
On Monday night the 21-year-old was transferred from the Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth, where the gaffer visited him straight after the game, to the London Bridge Hospital closer to his family home.
Yesterday afternoon he was seen by top consultant orthopaedic surgeon Paul Culpan, who will operate on the 11-goal midfielder’s left leg once the swelling has reduced.
“Cameron’s picked up a relatively bad injury that’s going to keep him out for a number of months,” said Jones. “We don’t know how long until the surgeon completes the operation, but as soon as it has been done we’ll have a clearer picture of timescale and rehabilitation.
“What we do know from Cam though is that he’s strong, he’s driven, he’s a young, super-fit athlete and that gives him every chance to come back better than ever.
“The kid has a fantastic work ethic every day he’s in the football club, and that attitude to the work he will have to do day-to-day will be highly conducive to him making a speedy, safe recovery.
“He knows we’re all right behind him and that he’ll get the very best support from the superb medical staff we have at the club.”
